Smith's Bible Dictionary
Araunah

(ark), a Jebusite who sold his threshing floor on Mount Moriah to David as a site for an altar to Jehovah, together with his oxen. (2 Samuel 24:18-24; 1 Chronicles 21:25)

ATS Bible Dictionary
Araunah

A Jebusite, residing on Mount Moriah after the Jebusites were dispossessed by David, 2 Samuel 5:6 24:18. In 1 1 Corinthians 16:24, he is called ORNAN. The divine choice of his land for the temple site, 2 Chronicles 3:1, and his readiness to give it freely for this purpose, suggest the probability that he was a convert to the true religion.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Agile; also called Ornan 1 Chronicles 21:15, a Jebusite who dwelt in Jerusalem before it was taken by the Israelites. The destroying angel, sent to punish David for his vanity in taking a census of the people, was stayed in his work of destruction near a threshing-floor belonging to Araunah which was situated on Mount Moriah. Araunah offered it to David as a free gift, together with the oxen and the threshing instruments; but the king insisted on purchasing it at its full price (2 Samuel 24:24; 1 Chronicles 21:24, 25), for, according to the law of sacrifices, he could not offer to God what cost him nothing. On the same place Solomon afterwards erected the temple (2 Samuel 24:16; 2 Chronicles 3:1). (see ALTAR.)
